Can You Tell What’s Chocolate? The Eagerly Awaited Sequel 

Maybe this man is biting a shoe. Or maybe, he’s biting a shoe made of chocolate. That’s right, your favourite sweet tooth quiz is back.

Surely you remember last year how Japanese TV show Ultraman Dash had its celebrity panel try to discern what items were real and what were sweets? This January, Ultraman Dash had its annual New Year’s Day special and brought the sugar fun again.

Like last year, one part* of the show had “sokkuri sweets” (そっくりスイーツ), with “sokkuri” meaning “looks like” or “spitting image”. But remember, these sweets look like anything but sweets!

  • Are you fucking kidding me? 28 animated gifs. Bashcraft you were already an absolute joke of a “journalist” by your obsession and lack-of-knowledge-outside-of-anything-cosplay, but this has taken your credibility to its absolute lowest.

    Just post a video you absolute clown.

    • I’m sure there’s a reason he didn’t post a video, but yes this was extremely annoying to come into the post seeing nothing but gifs. Terrible effort, Brian.

  • *bitch moan bitch moan* meh i found the page interesting. and gifs are easier to digest at work than a video.

    • 28 gifs. Approx 5 MB each. Total of approx 140MB of gifs….
      Exactly how is that easy to digest at work other than the fact you may have youtube or other video sharing sites blocked because you’re meant to be working?
